VALENTINE'S DAY: I've never been a big Valentine's Day guy, but I have always liked The Replacements' "Valentine" and Elvis Costello's cover of "My Funny Valentine."  Beyond that, my thoughts typically drift to the Velvet Underground's "I'll Be Your Mirror," The Beatles' "In My Life," and the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows." I think it's probably very difficult to write a straight-ahead, universal love song, and these three are great.

AL JARREAU,  a versatile vocalist who sold millions of records and won numerous Grammys for his work in pop and R&B as well as his first love, jazz, died on Sunday in Los Angeles. He was 76.  Somehow, the NYT managed to leave of the theme from "Moonlighting."

DIRTY PROJECTORS' and FLEET FOXES' frontmen had comments about the state of indie rock that landed them in a kerfuffle.

RYAN ADAMS discusses the "Summer of '69 Incident."

RICK DERRINGER was charged with having a loaded gun on a Delta flight.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The LEGO Batman Movie topped the chart with 55.6MM, behind the The LEGO Movie's 69MM opening, but doing another 37MM overseas.  That's a good start on the likely 200MM it needs to get into the bat-black.  Fifty Shades Darker placed with 46.8MM, well ahead of studio projections in the mid-30s.  OTOH, it's likely front-loaded and may be looking at a drop-off after Valentine's Day.  John Wick: Chapter 2 showed with 30MM, over twice what the original made in its debut weekend.  Front-loading is another question here, as this sequel got greenlit when it became a cult fave in the home market (reportedly as much as another 53MM); good reviews and word-of-mouth (from men and women) could help Keanu & Co. leg out.  Split slides to the fourth slot with 9.3MM on a 34 percent drop that's not bad considering three big sequels rolled into cineplexes.  Split is now over 100MM domestic against a 9MM production budget.  Hidden Figures rounds out the Top Five with 8MM on a still-leggy 21 percent drop.

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 was about as good as he original, btw.  Of course, it couldn't recapture the near-goofy twist on the revenge genre, or surprise you too much with its world-building.  But the sequel does delve a bit more deeply and broadly into that world with generally good results. Most of the original surviving cast returns, along with a few choice additions; Common is particularly good, while another cameo is particularly fun (and perhaps surprising to people not paying attention). The balletic gun (and car) fights are shot slightly differently; this one has less of the first-person shooter videogame feel of the original.  Different people will have their own opinions on which style variant is better.
